Pictograms - Scaled in increments of 2, 5 and 10

Today, we are learning about pictograms where each picture represents 2 objects.  Have a look at this - what do you notice?



This is quite tricky, because each circle represents 2 children.  So, we can count up in twos, but what about the semi-circle?  Well, that is half of 2 so it must represent 1.


Task 1

Watch the White Rose Video Lesson and complete the activities as you go.


Task 2

Use the data which you collected last Monday about transport to complete a scaled pictogram where the scale goes up in twos.  I would really like you to have a go at drawing out your own pictogram using a ruler.


Here is an example:
